50 Creative Ways to Eat Spinach

By Jennifer Restuccio, a recent ASU Nutrition Student

Spinach is in season! If you’re anything like I am, you love buying spinach but have trouble eating it before it goes bad. But, I must change my ways! Have you noticed how healthy this leafy green is for you and me?

Spinach is one of the healthiest leafy greens you can eat. It’s high in carotenoids, vitamin C, Vitamin K1, folic acid, iron, calcium, manganese, and magnesium.

Spinach is perfect for getting much-needed vitamins during winter. Vitamins A and C help strengthen the immune system and protect us from catching colds.

Many of us find it hard to incorporate spinach into our diets in a way that we enjoy. A plain spinach salad is something that few people look forward to eating. I don’t know about you, but I’d rather consume spinach in a dish that makes my mouth water!

There are so many ways to cook spinach that we wouldn’t normally think of without the help of the internet.

Whether you like spinach frozen, canned, or fresh, these recipes will help you get creative with your greens when you’re ready to eat them.
